Magic Light + Sound of Germany has added a stock of Elation Professional Cuepix Panel LED matrix blinders to its extensive inventory of event technology products. The Cologne-based rental company is the latest European event technology rental house to add Elation lighting to its inventory.
“The Cuepix Panels were specifically requested for use on various projects so we decided to buy them after numerous rentals,” said Marco Pütz, managing director at Magic Light + Sound. “This type of product with LED technology is just what was required.” The full colour 5 x 5 Cuepix Panels house 30-watt RGB LEDs and are some of the most popular LED matrix panels on the market. Useful for anything from organic looks to flash blinders to pixel-mapped effects, they include individual pixel control, which makes a variety of creative effects possible. Magic Light + Sound has already had them out on various television programs including Germany’s Got Talent and It Takes Two and they are currently being used on Let’s Dance.
Magic Light + Sound’s purchase of the Cuepix Panels follows a string of Elation product purchases by top European rental companies of late including Frequenz Systems’ (Germany) purchase of Platinum FLX/HFX hybrid moving heads and Platinum Wash ZFX Pro fixtures; B-Lighting’s (Belgium) recent investment in the Platinum FLX; Ambion’s (Germany) recent purchase of ACL 360i effect lights; and Vision Media Systems’ (Germany) investment in Elation SixBar 1000 and SixBar 500 LED battens.
